About ARI

ARI is a cloud-based auto repair software solution designed to help independent mechanics, mobile technicians, car dealers, and shops manage vehicle inspections, spare part inventories, client communications, VIN decoding and license plate recognition. Repair businesses can list services in an online booking directory, receive requests from clients, and approve/deny appointments from within the application.

With a range of modules for accounting, a built-in spare parts database, client relationship management, invoicing, estimation, car diagnostics, and more, ARI streamlines the entire repairing lifecycle for businesses. It lets mechanical shops diagnose a vehicle using customizable inspection checklists, detect damage to create job cards, assign work to mobile technicians, order spare parts, raise invoices on services, and send automated reminders to clients. Additionally, professionals can maintain and store details about new and recurring customers such as addresses, payment modes, GPS coordinates, and past visits in a centralized repository.

ARI provides custom invoicing templates along with a preview functionality, which businesses can utilize to add brand logos, colors, fonts, and signatures and rewrite parts of forms specific to service requirements. It also comes with eSignature capabilities, which allow businesses to receive customer signatures on mobile devices before sending final invoices via emails.

Easy to access customer service and easy to use features make this a great experience.

Pros

It's easy for us to train and use. It was worth every penny spent to upgrade to this software. There are advanced features that we couldn't get with any other similar programs.

Cons

So far I haven't found any real issues that are a problem.

Overall, we continue to be impressed with ARI. I am sure there are functions that we are not even using yet. Each day we learn how to maximize the system for our needs. If you have a question, the company is very quick to respond and they provide clear and concise instructions for what you are asking. Data entry is very easy and quick for adding a new customer, then adding associated vehicles as well as transition from an estimate to a job card to an invoice. Invoices email clean so long as you use the app. Avoid the desktop for this. We have several large fleets and we find the information is easy to access to multiple vehicles. You are able to quickly locate prior work as well as inspection reports. We do believe that it would be more efficient if inspections were not separate and could be associated with the vehicle under the customer somehow versus through another icon in the app but it is working as is also. We have not used the diagnostics portion yet because we work on most heavy truck but looking forward to how this may improve diagnostics for light vehicles.

Pros

Because we are a mobile vehicle repair business, we love the functionality of ARI. Job cards can be created while a tech is en route and the tech will have access to the job card before arrival to a job. The tech can then update the job card as necessary. This is a very intuitive and fluid process. We rolled ARI out on cell phones and it is working excellent!

Cons

We are still learning how to utilize the reports functions so that we are not feeling like we have to keep track of revenue, expenses, and taxes elsewhere. There are several reports however there is no single report that will give you all of this at a glance. You are able to export each report which is helpful!

Reasons for Switching to ARI

We were impressed while demoing the product. User friendly, easy to learn, intuitive to use, and functional.

Response from uMob

Thank you for your feedback.
We're happy to let you know that you can now attach Inspections to JobCards, just as you've recommended.
Working on better reporting!
